Before the invention of Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O, dermatologists would recommend cleansing milks, however this is not the best solution for sensitive skin as they need to be rinsed off with a toner, which can further cause irritation as they are often poorly tolerated and aggressive on skin. To solve this issue, Bioderma Laboratoire developed the new “micellar” technology in 1995, with the introduction of the Sensibio H2O, the first cleansing and make-up removing water, guaranteeing a gentle non-rinse formula for sensitive skin. Setting the standard in terms of dermatological safety, Sensibio H2O was rapidly accepted and prescribed by dermatologists.
FORMULA Sensibio H2O has an ecobiological formulation with a pH 5.5, close to the pH of the skin. The micellar water is formulated with highly purified water, using 9 stages of purification to ensure a very high level of microbiological cleanliness, which is free of endotoxins. Current the micellar waters available on the market use distilled water, which does not eliminate all bacterial toxins, which can further cause irritation for sensitive skin. The results after using Bioderma’s micellar water is that even the most sensitive reactive skin is soothed and cleansed, with all impurities safely and gently removed from the skin’s surface. Bioderma goes beyond the regulation to ensure its micellar water is the safest and highest quality. Another uniqueness of Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O is that it is made from only 10 ingredients in total and is the only micellar water that has 3 biomimetic sugars (rhamnose, mannitol and xylitol) to prevent the inflammatory process, with lasting results.
Sensibio H2O has just 1 surfactant (cleansing agent). Bioderma is the only brand using a single surfactant whose tolerance and efficacy have been proven, thanks to its optimised concentration of use. The surfactant Bioderma uses respects the hydrolipidic film, as its composition is close to the skin’s lipidic barrier. Sensibio H2O removes 99% of makeup, 98% of pollution particles and 78% of heavy metals. 1 STATISTICS Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O has proven success, receiving a high calibre of awards across the globe. Today 1 product is sold every 2 seconds worldwide and in the UK 1 is sold less than every 2 minutes making it the most sought after micellar water on the market.
